I'm making window signs for our stay at POP next week! A lime green Mickey head and a sign saying "It's Lexi & Nathan's First Trip to the WORLD!"

Target's Dollar Spot has a butt-load of CUTE Halloween decorations. I scored these really cute tinsel hanging cat, ghosts, and pumpkin, and some foam BOO signs. Plus they have mini strobe lights for $2.50. They run on AA batteries, so I guess I need to stock up on those as well.

Window Measurements??

Does anyone know the measurements of the windows at the POP? Just a general idea would be great.

Thanks for the help

I go every fall with DH and we never decorate our windows. . .

BUT, I also go every winter with my mom and we DEFINITELY do!

This year, we're planning on making a window scene at Beach Club that includes all the Barbie princesses. We're not going until February, but when we do, I promise we'll come back with pictures!

Last year, we didn't decorate the window - but we did create a winter wonderland scene of the Department 54 Disney houses and characters. It was her birthday, and she didn't know why I had lugged an entire extra suitcase onto the flight. . .surprise!!!!

I almost hate to ask this question......For those of you that hang wreaths on your room doors. Have you ever had one messed up or taken? I have really been looking forward to taking a wreath for my door at POFQ. I would hate to have anything happen to it.

Hi there! I had several things on my door that were fine for the 6 days we were at POFQ over Christmas! I had even put up a Disney Xmas dry erase board and it was great to find messages from people in the morning!! Make sure you take pics to post!

Ok, so I've searched and am having trouble finding the pictures. Someone posted a picture of lights and a Mickey wreath on their balcony. What I am wondering is where would you plug the lights in??? Is there a plug in on the balcony or do you have to plug them in in the room, therefor only being able to have the lights on when your in the room?
